What I’m Lovin’ this Fall

Fall snuck up on me so I missed catching up with you all last month, but I’m back with a Fall-tastic list to share! 😉

 1. Horoscopes from Chani Nicholas

I receive her horoscopes via email and one earlier this month hit me with total delight – her writing style is so beautiful.

 2. Craft Boner’s very appropriate holiday ornaments

Last year she launched “2020 sucked” ornaments and I, of course, ordered several to gift. Little did I know that the sentiment would still be appropriate.

 3. Baking Cookies in Muffin Tins

This revelation completely blew my mind. My sister & I tried it with store-bought dough and it was fantastic even though we failed to press the dough down into the cups (it did not spread to fill the cups like we assumed so I recommend pressing the dough to shape before baking).

 4. Visible Mending…Even on Furniture

I’m a big fan of visible mending. It’s a great way to gain appreciation for what you have and invest in its longevity. And I’m not just talking about repairing a hole in a sweater: Apartment Therapy is predicting visible mending will be the next home decor trend.

 5. Dogs

I will never not be loving dogs, but these 26 photos of dogs being the fabulous creatures they are was a must-share.

 6. American Consumers Are The Worst, But We Don’t Have To Be

The Atlantic shed some very unflattering light on how awful American shoppers are. I don’t love that we’re awful, but I appreciated the reflection it brought. It’s worth a read particularly as we’re in the midst of holiday shopping.

 7. The Tiny House of My Dreams

This adorable A-frame cabin with it’s pops of pink throughout is my dream house.

 8. Supporting Artists

Supporting artists – whether they’re local to my area or a small shop I’ve stumbled upon – is something I’m incredibly passionate about. If you are unable to afford their goods (or maybe you like what they’re making but it’s just not for you), you can follow these tips from Wikihow to support them while saving your coins.

 9. So, Zo’s Patchwork Denim Shirt

This upcycled shirt is super impressive! Zoe did an amazing job transforming an existing denim shirt she thrifted years ago. The hand-stitching adds such a special element.

 Podcast Episodes I’m Lovin’ Right Now:

TED Radio Hour: Listen Again – Esther Perel: Building Resilient Relationships (2020)

[open in iTunes]

  • I listened to the original broadcast of this episode last fall and it still resonates. Esther’s insight into relationships (both personal and professional) is enlightening.

Terrible, Thanks For Asking: Saving Us

[open in iTunes]

  • I almost skipped this episode, but Nora promised it to be uplifting (which is not necessarily what this series is all about) and she delivered! Not only does the climate scientist she interviews gift us with inspiration, but she also shares tips on how to talk to others about climate change (or really any issue you disagree on) in a civil manner.

How To!: How To Beat The Dreaded Midday Slump

[open in iTunes]

  • So, being a Nap Researcher is a profession. Dr. Sara Mednick shares how to take the best nap possible and, for those of us who aren’t nappers (me!), she shares things you can do to re-energize yourself throughout the day. A pertinent episode for tired parents (hi! Also, me).

Pioneering Today: The BEST Homemade gifts that people actually want to receive!

[open in iTunes]

  • If you like to DIY holiday gifts, this episode is full of inspiration!

Thank you for reading along & being a part of my community. ❤

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
